GENERAL REMARKS
The business is offered for sale as a lease assignment with approximately 4 years remaining of the original Punch Taverns full repairing and insuring, renewable agreement. We are advised that the inn is partially tied to draught beers, bottled beers and ciders ONLY. We are informed
that the rent is currently 35,000 per annum. We are advised that at the end of the term, the Lease (not seen by Guy Simmonds) should be renewable with no further premium - subject to the provision of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954. We are advised that the inn benefits from all mains services and uses gas fired heating (no services seen or tested). Business rates payable are advised as currently being circa TBC per annum.

THE BUSINESS
Our vendor client operates this excellent business as a 'partnership' team on a part time basis with the assistance of 2 full time and 3 part time members of staff.
Trade is currently derived from circa 70% wet and 30% food sales, thereby offering immense scope for a new hands-on owner operator partnership to emulate the current operating model but at the same time to take this business to even greater heights by expanding on the existing food offering and by also focussing on a strategic marketing campaign to promote the premises for functions, private parties and wakes etc.
This is an exciting opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change or an alternative career from the stress and strife of the City or even as an additional income stream whilst commuting. Advised current turnover is circa 350,000 (incl. VAT).
This delightful inn is a well-established and successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully focussed and fully committed full time hands-on operator to achieve a turnover well in excess of 350,000 (incl. VAT).

Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
